It's not necessary to go to church in order to get
saved and therefore go to heaven, but going to church
still has very important benefits that can help
improve your life and keep it in order.
Below are 13 reasons why we should attend church
services on a regular basis.
1. Because it is an act of obedience to God and it
honors the Lordís Day. Remember the Sabbath day, to
keep it holy (Ex. 20:8).
2. Because we need to belong to a community of faith
that includes our brothers and sisters in Christ who
are trying to live out the gospel just like we are.
3. Because we will benefit from being taught and led
in worship by others, rather than always depnding on
ourselves to read and study the bible.
4. Because we need regular reminders of our standing
in Christ, help in acknowledging and confessing our
sins, and teaching about God's truth.
5. Because we need help in praying, tithing and
6. Because we need help to face the issues of life and
faith as presented through the teachings of the Bible.
7. Because we need to hear how believers in the past

other contemporary believers.

messages of a culture that ignores God.

creative expressions of the faith, such as music,
praying, fasting and tithing.

week and see it as a small part of the journey of

family problems, and self interests in order to

devil are well thought out and proven to work better
than the marketing strategies of rich corporations
Therefore, we need other people we can count on to
help us make it threw tough times when they arise.
Our chances of finding people we can count on in
church are far better than finding someone we can
count on anywhere else in the world.
Plus, going up against these strategies with out
proper guidance will lead to unnecessary mistakes
being made on our part.
In conclusion, going to church while also doing our
own personal bible study at home on a regular basis
helps us to get confirmation of God's message and what
He wants us to do with our lives.
